A Little Bit of History

No please, don't click the "X" icon in the right top corner of your screen! I'm not going to bore you with another column dealing with History. In fact, I clearly have nothing to write today, so I'll leave you with some interesting things related to History. Trust me, you're going to enjoy reading these articles in question. Good reading.

  • The Chinese in Montreal, The Gazette (May 21, 2007). A very interesting article about the presence of people of Chinese heritage in Montreal. Obviously, the racism that these people faced from the 1900s to the 1960s is being talked about in this article written by John Kalbfleisch

  • ISRAËL - Pardonnez notre racisme, Courrier International (May 18, 2007). An article from the Israeli newspaper Ha'Aretz translated in French. It talks about the strained relation between the Jews and Muslims (and by extension people of Arabic heritage) living in France.

  • Les 60 ans du Festival de Cannes : la mémoire du siècle, Historia (May 2007, issue 725). Since the creation of the Cannes Film Festival in 1946, History (according to the political context) was always reflected throughout the years. What kind of historical movies were shown in 1946? There were movies on the Second World War, duh!

  • La Révolution invente la démocratie participative, Historia (May 2007, issue 725). Is participation democracy a new idea that appeared in France with Ségolène Royal? I don't think so...

  • Accouchement sous X : la spécificité française, Historia (May 2007, Issue 725). Are the Japanese trying to copy the French when it comes to deal with newly born babies? This is an article that tells you how some French women were secretly abandoning their baby or even secretly giving life to a child by having the law on their side.
